Should I go back to see my dr? UPDATE
I have been depressed for as long as I can remember. I was on Celexa from the time I turned 18. In December of 2010, I decided to stop taking it because I felt that I was finally happy. I have been doing great since then but my SO left on deployment a month and a half ago. Ever since then, I spend most of my time in front of the computer when DD is sleeping (which is almost all the time). He is currently 7 hours ahead of me in time zones and goes to bed really early compared to the time it is here. After he goes to bed, I feel like I have no motivation to do anything. Most of the time, I just sit here and cry. Since I'm okay during the day when I can talk to him, I'm not really sure if it's my depression or just the normal reaction to having someone so close to me being gone for so long. I don't know if it would be a waste of time going back to my doctor and I really don't want to take unnecessary medication. I don't know what to do but I'm tired of feeling this way... What do you think I should do?
Thank you ladies so much for your help. I went back to my doctor today to see what she thought about the situation. I'm not bak on my medication just yet because I really don't want to take it if I don't have to. She told me that she thinks I'm holding up great but if I ever felt like I needed to start taking my Celexa again, not to worry about going in and just to call her and she would put the perscription in for me. Thanks again!
